Congratulations have poured in for the YSS Worcestershire Youngmark and ness receiving flowers from lord winnington Carers  who   led and  took part in  their 2nd annual conference at  drpgroup  in Hartlebury.



emma matt and deniellaThe young carers  shared their personal journeys,  live on stage, or by video. The younger age group of young carers  joined in too  by video, thanks to the filming  and production expertise  of drp. The audience  found these inspirational  stories very humbling and emotional  to hear. They began to understand further  the  role of the young carer, and also  the invaluable support  these  remarkable  young people  receive from  organisations  such as Worcestershire Young Carers.
